The guy who writes this book is pretty pretentious and has a rather stuffy idea of what is "absurd". Although he proves his point about buildings that are nonfunctional or faulty (and once or twice is actually funny when he's trying to be), he comes across as a self righteous blowhard and the best things about this book are probably the pictures.
